Is it true what certain people say re: padding of 15-20% being an "unspoken norm?"
(Same poster as above)
I really don't know. I try to be as honest as possible. And what other associates bill seems generally commensurate with the hours I see them spend in the office.
Then again, for all I know, the partner could be writing down my hours before sending them off to clients.
Murky territory. I agree.
